‘Saturday Night Live’ Turns 40: Kevin Nealon, Fred Armisen, and more ‘SNL’ alums on ‘Larry King Now’


Like many figures in the public eye, Larry King has certainly been subjected to his fair share of ribbing on 'Saturday Night Live' over the years. From the spoof of his wedding reception – complete with Norm MacDonald spouting off his version of Larry’s #ItsMy2Cents – to an imagined version of his interview with Bill Clinton’s (played by Darryl Hammond) accusers during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, 'Saturday Night Live' and Larry have a long history. More recently, Betty White even tried to start a campaign to get Larry to host the show, which this week celebrates 40 years on the air.

We’ve been lucky enough to have a number of SNL alums come visit us on 'Larry King Now'. Kevin Nealon, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Will Forte, Martin Short, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Rob Riggle, Dan Aykroyd, and of course Norm MacDonald have all sat down with Larry – out of character – to chat about their careers. Below, check out some of our favorite moments with these stars and take a virtual stroll down to Studio 8H.
